Old Video Game Commercials
« on: January 30, 2005, 11:36:27 am »
I read on a thread here recently that someone wanted some old video game commercials.  I was watching Screensavers today and saw that the program Cinematech on G4Techtv is going to run a bunch of old classic videogame commercials instead of ingame videos tomorrow at 11:00 eastern I believe.  If anyone is interested....so Monday 11 eastern...old videogame commercials on G4TechTV.  Happy Gaming...

I picked up this DVD the other day of the old Saturday Supercade cartoons from the early 80's, on the disk was propably an hours worth of old commercials too.

$30!!!!!  Okay, I'm a retro-junkee who used to have a tape trade page, so, yeah, something like this is way, way up my alley.  But $30 is just a bit daft for a copy of a DVD-R. 

Sorry.  I'm just complaining because I'd really like a copy but I really can't justify spending $30 on a DVD that'll only amuse me for a day and maybe sporadically here and there.  You can buy a whole season of the Simpsons for almost that much (if you use a coupon or something and the cashier forgets to ring it up).

I believe this guy sells them still (although for legal reasons, can't say that he does) it used to be $5 per dvd so if a show took 4 dvd's it cost 20 bucks--i could be wrong...

pm me if you are going to order, i wouldn't mind divying up some expenses on some shows.

I bought it through Ebay so it was a little bit cheaper, but still propably not worth the money.  Definitely amusing for a while though...

Here's a link to a site with a bunch of 80's commercials.  Everything from Fruity Pebbles to Colecovision to Stretch Armstrong.  Don't let the domain name fool you, the site is pretty benign.

Hey,

I'm going to by this disc for $30(Saturday Morning Supercade). I will make copies for everyone shipping included for $6 to slowly make my money back.

Any interest?
